School and Community Teaching Artist Residencies
Essex Elementary School
All k-2nd grade students made texture tiles and mapped mural images while learning about shape, color and pattern. With six murals in total, the Essex Elementary students worked hard to decorate their school with original art. This residency was made possible by funding from the Essex PTO and community fundraising.
hyde park Elementary School "It Takes a Village Mural”

5th grade students leave behind memories of their time at IAA in the form of an art project each year. The 2017 5th grade class left behind their version of carin stone stacks in the school’s garden. The 2019 5th grade class made modern fossils from moments and objects they remember from their years in elementary school. All “fossils” were glass casted.
